I am in my 40s and I am desperate to have the vaccine . I have to wait for atleast 5 months I guess

People who are fortunate to have eligibility to get this vaccine, please don't waste a moment. Go and get your jab.

Millions of unfortunate people around the world are waiting to have one

Few if any over 70's should have to ring in, they should have been contacted directly by the government/ NHS for their jabs.

Something seriously wrong in the system if the government suddenly feels it needs to publicly announce this and they wouldn't be doing so if they didn't think a significant number of over 70's have somehow been missed.

Makes you wonder what else many over 70's have missed.

Can you imagine the actual logistics of this whole thing with Covid-19 and now the organising of vaccinating most of the population. It has involved people working 24/7 for months. This has never been done in modern times before and has caught most nations governments out. People like you are great at mouthing off just like opposition MPs.

How is this a lie? How is it nonsense or confusing. They are simply asking any over 70s who have not had an appointment to contact the NHS. They are particularly asking those who have been contacted but didn't go ahead at the time to book an appointment. People might have moved away or might not be registered with a GP so this is to catch them.

Logic says that the success of the vaccination programme, stomping on original and Kent variants (especially if stops infection as well as major illness) will inevitably lead to South African or later variant being dominant.
Of course incompetent govt can make that a reality sooner - e.g. having kept borders open.

Some areas are expecting the over 70s to drive for up to an hour or make a very difficult journey on public transport to reach a vaccination centre when booking online. Our CCG has failed to organise a second centre in a pharmacy or a large hub nearby. The local vaccination centres are working as efficiently as possible but have been hampered by poor management.

Some responsibility and onus is surely on the individual. We can’t be wet nursed through every single action. It’s not an unreasonable request. If you’re over 70 and you want the vaccine, and haven’t yet had it, contact the NHS as there is one waiting for you. Ought to be the shortest HYS ever, although of course it won’t be.

There may well be a small number that have no idea of the need to call in and ask. Not everyone lives doing nothing but listen to news, let alone in detail. That age range also has a high likelihood of not using modern media, and have no idea how or who to contact. If you are healthy or not bothered about health issues enough to have a GP, etc.

Not true. My 74yo mum with COPD has bubbled with us since before Christmas, 120 miles from her home. Her surgery invited her for a vaccine, but we are unable to travel to get it. The invite is non transferable to other areas as it is practice specific, NOT NHS organised so it simply can’t take place. Begging and pleading to her and my surgery and the local vaccine coordinator has achieved nothing.

Offered two locations
One has no public transport links, the other has several bus links but she doesn't want to go on public transport, rightly so

Somewhat disturbing that the GP's aren't in a position to manage and contact their patients in these "eligible groups" to give them appointments. I wonder how they are going to handle to rolling out of the second, follow up, jab - it seems to me that, at that time, the system is going to be overwhelmed by requests for second jabs, and requests for first jabs from the next group.

Sorry BBC...but the news just implied that the Gov't was asking over 70's who have not been offered a jab to contact the NHS or their GP rather than wait!

This report is not correct...it was those who have been offered, but have not taken up the offer of the jab, who are being encouraged to get in touch to arrange a jab! Quite a different take!

Wrong. The government has clearly said any over 70s can and should now make contact. No stipulation that is just those who have already been contacted, as it is clearly saying they shouldn't wait to be contacted!

Completely wrong, it was repeated several times for over-70s in England without a jab or appointment to make contact to get one via the website, or phone the central number or their GP.

No, it's not. Look a the web page and it's clear that anyone over 70 can book an appointment OR if you have received a letter saying you are at high risk from coronavirus (clinically extremely vulnerable). Please be very careful before spreading misinformation.

The writer of this article should not talk about being immunised as vaccination gives valuable protection through 'training' of the immune system but it does not give immunity. They should stick with one word and say vaccination.

I assume anyone who has had their first vaccination but has no date for the second should call as well. And also anyone who was not given a vaccination card. I fall into both of these groups.

Maybe GPs could check their records for patients over 70 who have not been vaccinated?

If you have had a first vaccination you will have been given a card with the appointment for the second. Not sure why you weren't given one. Check with your own GP.
My GPs practice has been checking records and phoning round anyway.

Doesn't make any sense. The UK government knows that the elderly on the UK need to be vaccinated and yet they are offering a choice if they should get vaccinated, why should the elderly have to contact their local booking system to be jabbed, when each one should of already been on that list in the first place and ready to call them up to bring them in?

It's important that we protect our people.

Sorry BBC...but the news just implied that the Gov't was asking over 70's who have not been offered a jab to contact the NHS or their GP rather than wait!

This report is not correct...it was those who have been offered, but have not taken up the offer of the jab, who are being encouraged to get in touch to arrange a jab! Quite a different take!

My end of life will hopefully be caused by cancer, not a premature death through covid. Hopefully you will get your vaccine soon, they are doing an amazing job getting it done so quickly.

It's an offer not mandatory. So you don't get treatment for a non Covid condition if you refuse their prototype, yep makes sense that.
